Green’s of Pangbourne was last night awarded the ultimate accolade – Britain’s Best Butchers.
The title is generally considered the most coveted in the UK’s meat trade, as it is judged by industry professionals who demand the most exacting standards.
Green’s directors – Master Butcher Royston Hine and Master Chef Philip Cripps – received the award at a glittering function at London’s Royal Garden Hotel from soccer legend Jimmy Greaves.
“We accept this award as recognition for the hard work of our team and the attention to detail, service, and quality which permeates every aspect of our work day after day.
“To receive such an accolade from fellow-professionals in our industry is most welcome. Alongside the thanks we regularly receive from customers and the comradeship we enjoy every day at work, it will go to make 2011 a very special year for Green’s”.
